Ron Lagomarsino didn't seem to think that the silver, five-pointed star in his left earlobe violated the dress code any more than his rumpled green shirt, faded jeans or scuffed, white high tops. Of medium height with curly brown hair and an unassuming manner, he sauntered past the large brass plate that read "Proper Attire Please" at the entrance to the sedate guest club of a businessman's hotel in Santa Ana without giving the words a glance. "They've got great coffee," he said, and headed straight for the serve-yourself urn set out by the bar one morning last week.

With "A Beautiful Mind" garnering so much acclaim for its portrayal of mental illness, it might be easy to overlook "My Sister's Keeper" as more of the same. But that would be a mistake. This Hallmark Hall of Fame production (Sunday at 9 p.m., CBS) tells the true story of Christine (Kathy Bates) and Judy (Elizabeth Perkins), sisters whose journey of discovery and reconciliation has the feel of quirky realism, not schmaltz.

The 1933 "Dinner at Eight" is such a cherished Hollywood classic that one can only approach a remake with trepidation. Yet TNT's new production, which premieres at 5 and repeats at 7 tonight, is a sparkling delight, thanks to an apt cast and especially to writer Tom Griffin. His updating is shrewd: His imaginative array of contemporary references underline what is timeless in playwrights George S. Kaufman's and Edna Ferber's observations of human nature.

"The Last Night of Ballyhoo" is, on one level, a soft-focus period piece, casting a gentle and good-humored glow on a curious slice of Americana in 1939. Yet Alfred Uhry's comedy also resonates beyond its time and place. It examines an ever-simmering feature of American culture--the assimilation of "the other." Uhry's play opened at the Can~on Theatre in Beverly Hills Sunday, in a sterling staging by Ron Lagomarsino, who also directed its much-lauded New York run.

Crossing from one gender to another is such a dramatic journey that it's surprising there haven't been more plays on the subject. Jane Anderson's "Looking for Normal," getting its world premiere at the Geffen Playhouse, manages the task of covering one such journey with a light touch, yet without making fun of the protagonist or anyone else. It also offers a compassionate and convincing case that human ties can transcend gender.

The present may be perilous, but there's safety in antiquity. So no wonder that TV projects pitching nostalgia are being warmly received by the networks. Familiar older faces and musty themes loom large among this season's new series, spreading what the networks hope is a safety net across turbulent economic waters. In addition, the CBS comedy "Brooklyn Bridge" and the coming NBC drama series "I'll Fly Away" are set in the 1950s.
